JKM 2002 Beach Run, Den Helder - Santpoort - Hoek van Holland, 30/31-03-2002

  • Den Helder - Santpoort - Hoek van Holland (155km)
  • Santpoort - Hoek van Holland (77km)
  • Santpoort - Hoek van Holland (42/35km)

The fifth edition of the JKM -short for "Jan Knippenberg Memorial"- will take place in 2002 March 30th and 31st. The race will lead the runners mainly along the Dutch western coast. The first 55 K will be on the beach. At the north "Noordelijke Havendam" (i.e. northern jetty) of IJmuiden you will leave the beach to come through Santpoort. After 80 K you will be back on the beach at the "Zuidelijke Havendam" (i.e. southern jetty). Once again you will leave the beach for about 1 K at the harbour of Scheveningen. The remaining part will be on the beach. The full distance, the 155 K Den Helder to Hoek van Holland, participates also in the Belgium Marathon and Ultra Cup 2002.

This memorial is dedicated to the memory of Jan Knippenberg, who's slogan was "running isn't sport, it is a way of travelling". The race course will lead you from his town of passing away, Den Helder, back to his town of birth, Hoek van Holland; on the edge between water, land and the sky where Jan Knippenberg spend many hours running during his live time.

The race will be a little bit different from previous editions. For the whole distance no qualification is needed; instead of it elimination points are introduced. For the half way we added a couple race as well, so it is possible to cover the 77 K by a team of two runners with changeover at Katwijk at the marathon distance. In short the programme looks as follows:

  • Saturday March 30th 2002
